Fodor's Expert Review Vouliagmeni Lake
The part-salt, part spring-fed warm waters of Vouliagmeni Lake are reputed to have curative powers, and thus are popular with older Greeks. At the lakeshore beach, with a dramatic, rocky backdrop that provides one of the most exotic settings in Attica, you can rent umbrellas, and there are showers, as well as a pleasant and popular café-restaurant. Most of the lake has a gradual slope and sandy bottom (although caution is recommended, as it deepens suddenly in parts). Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee); showers. Best for: sunset; swimming; walking.
